Every now and then I hear a quote or phrase fall out of someone's mouth that is definitely worth noting. I heard one such quote while watching The Ultimate Fighter, season 8 just now. As was so eloquently put by Al "Stankie" Stankiewicz, 67 year old boxing coach, and assistant coach to the fighters this season:
"Tomorrow is like a promissory note. You don't know if you're gonna get it or not. Today? Today is money in your hand. You gotta take today and make the best of it!"
That's the type of quote I write down and tape to my mirror, folks. You tell 'em, Stankie! ;)
Now, as I dug deeper, I learned that this gem of wisdom from the coach is actually a somewhat rougher take on a famous quote by Kay Lyons. The original quote goes:
"Yesterday is a canceled check; tomorrow is a promissory note; today is the only cash you have -- so spend it wisely."
I think I like Stankie's version better! ;)
What really good quote have you heard lately? Or what's your favorite?
